Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
Do I have to keep you under lock and key?
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
Now we both know that's not how it should be

Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
You're a sweet, fine, sexy woman and you're good to a man
'Cause if I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama
I hope that you will understand

If I have to keep you barefoot and pregnant
To keep you here in my world
Get down and take off your shoes
Girl, I'm gonna do to you what it is I've got to do

If we've been bondin' like you say that we do
I think you won't mind if I'd be possessive, now would you?
Your creature lacked lovin', you know it is the flame
That's why I can ask you and not even feel ashamed

Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
Are you susceptible to flatter and game? Lord, we can game
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
Will you submit to other humans that calls your name?

'Cause if I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama
Don't you know I know as that would be on que
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
I don't mind , I'll put 'em on, you're being a fool

I don't care if I'm lookin' like a chauvinistic kind of whatever
Some kind, Carl, you can go to hell
Then if I find out I need some help
I'm gonna pull on out my chastity belt
What it is I've got to do

If we've been bondin' like you say that we do
Then you won't mind if I be possessive, now would you?
Your creature locked lovin', you know it's the flame
That's why I can ask you and not even feel ashamed

Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
Do I have to keep you under lock and key?
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
Now we both know that's not how it should be

Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
Are you susceptible to flatter and game? Lord, we can game
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
You're a sweet, fine, sexy woman and you're good to a man
Do I have to put my handcuffs on you, mama?
